At Poughkeepsie Day School every child is an honored student

At Poughkeepsie Day School we are serious about learning. We value children for who they are and we respect and nurture every child’s amazing capacity to learn and grow. Our program is academically challenging because it is grounded by the joy of learning that every child brings to school. 

Every child is an individual on a unique journey. We support and encourage that journey by providing a caring community dedicated to growth, respect and learning. We expect every student to set ambitious personal horizons. We hold ourselves accountable to do our very best to help every student do theirs.

At PDS you will find:

  • A strong academic college preparatory program designed to support every learner 
  • Active classrooms, learning by doing, risk-taking and making mistakes are the norm and collaboration and persistence are highly valued
  • An emphasis on the arts and creativity across the curriculum
  • Assessment that is based on growth and potential, not standardized testing and ranking
  • Strong relationships, respect for individual differences, cultural complexity and divergent thinking 
  • Opportunities to belong and participate as well as to stand-out and be recognized
  • Access to the tools, resources and support students need to thrive as digital leaders 
  • An emphasis on self-discovery and self expression within a safe and caring community
  • Partnerships with local and global organizations that take learning and service beyond the confines of the campus
  • Big thinking, far horizons and boundless opportunity

Poughkeepsie Day School – a responsive school in a changing world.
